The animal cruelty case of Roger L. Miscovitch and Susan R. Miscovitch was again rescheduled Friday.
The couple's attorney was unable to be in court for family medical reasons, and Judge Kenneth Bailey Jr. set a new date for 9 a.m. Feb. 14, in Greene County General Sessions Court.
The two are charged with misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty, after leaving two dogs in a parked car in Greeneville, according to police reports.
One of the two dogs found locked in the car on Aug. 29 had to be euthanized.
Temperatures were in the 90s when police freed the dogs.
The incident happened in a Greeneville Medical Group parking lot, near Takoma Regional Hospital.
At least two people who saw the dogs locked in the car went inside the hospital and called police.
This initial preliminary hearing in October was rescheduled after Susan Miscovitch allegedly came to court intoxicated.
She was removed from court, and charged with public intoxication.
The couple lives on Good Hope Road in Parrottsville.
